Deviled eggs are one of my favorite appetizers. I always get a little excited when they make an appearance at a party or a barbecue.

They are also an Easter tradition at my house.

With three little boys, we hard boil A LOT of eggs. There’s no better way to get your protein than from turning delicious hard boiled eggs into Crack Deviled Eggs.

I love crack potatoes, hash browns mixed with cream cheese, ranch seasoning and bacon….mmmmm.

Then along came crack chicken. Pretty much the same thing, just chicken instead of potatoes.

How to Get Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Before you can make these Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs, you are going to need to start out with some hard boiled eggs.

There are many ways to get perfect hard boiled eggs, but my favorite by far, is to use my Instant Pot.

How to Hard Boil Eggs on the Stove

There are many methods out there to hard boil eggs on a stove top. This is the best way that I have found below.

  • Place the eggs in a large pan and cover with water, so that it is at least one or two inches above the eggs.
  • Turn the heat on high until the water begins to fully boil.
  • Put a lid on the pan and turn off the heat.
  • Allow the pan to sit on the warm burner for 10-12 minutes.
  • Drain the water and add the eggs to a water/ice bath for 5 minutes to stop the cooking process.

has anyone had a chance to actually try this recipe? I don't eat eggs. but my household does. i would love to try this rather than the norm.


Sunday 19th of January 2020

We tried them. They are okay I suppose. But I would never make them again. Everyone agreed they are no where near as good as regular deviled eggs. I wouldn’t recommend.

Looks so good! Would a packet of ranch seasoning mixed with Greek yogurt be an OK substitute for pre made ranch dressing? Thanks :)

I'm sure that would work great!
